July 23, 2007



Photographs of Lucille Fountain (top) and Pinkie Cox (bottom) are among the 36 portraits of local African Americans ages 90 and older featured in an exhibition titled “Enduring Hearts,” which will run July 27 through Sept. 2 at Pittsburgh Filmmakers Gallery, 477 Melwood St. in Oakland.

Photographer and Hill District native Armand Wright shot the portraits during the 2006 Lemington Community Services Senior Center’s annual spring luncheon. A public reception—cohosted by the center’s executive director, Joy Starzl (SOC WK ’97), and her husband, Thomas Starzl, Distinguished Service Professor of Surgery in Pitt’s School of Medicine—is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. Aug. 3 in the gallery. For more information, call Pittsburgh Filmmakers at 412-681-5449. Pitt, The Pittsburgh Foundation, and the Falk Foundation provided funding for the exhibition.
